bronze Castings (and Brass)
18 March 2009 | Made in Little Harbour
I attach a photo of two of the cast belt buckles from Little Harbour's Bronze Foundry.
The rear piece is cast in brass, and is one of their "bread and butter" pieces which helps pay for the operations of the foundry.
The foreground piece (the Dolphin) is cast in Bronze and was a gift from Richard, the wonderful man who has operating the foundry for the past 13 years. The bronze piece is quite unusual and no longer available normally.
The foundry accepts "apprenticies" every year to work and learn the lost wax casing methodology, and undertakes specific artistic commissions on a world wide basis.
The setting is ideal with the blue water and palm trees....

Between Louise's sore back (she could not walk for 4 days), my cracked tooth (fortunately no pain, but a root canal will be needed upon return), and today my sister is in the hospital with a perforated colon,
it is a good thing we're doing this sailing thing while we're still ambulatory.
never a dull moment!
